Crowns, also known as ‘caps’, are ideal for protecting the remaining root and tooth soft tissue, restoring the normal shape and size of teeth as well as enhancing the appearance of damaged teeth. A crown is designed to strengthen teeth that are damaged, worn or prone to breaking. For example, after a root canal procedure is performed, a patients teeth are brittle and a crown is required.
There are many forms of crowns but the most common two types are porcelain fused to metal (a metal casing that is covered in porcelain to match your existing tooth colour) and an all porcelain crown (mainly used for anterior teeth). They can cover and support a tooth, attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, protect an already broken tooth or cover an implant.
When a tooth or a series of teeth have to be removed, there are a number of treatment options that the Waverley Smile Clinic can provide to restore your smile and maintain your bite.
Dental bridges replace missing teeth and “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth may have been. The bridge may be made of gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials. Bridges are normally cemented on natural teeth or either side of the gap or attached to implants.
The dental bridge eliminates the gap left by a missing tooth or series of teeth, giving our patients a more beautiful smile.
